William Tell – You Can Hold Me Down lyrics

Sometimes I get up,
Just to watch you sleep.
You know when I get high,
It's just to be near you.
But this can't sustain.

You're so soft, soft as your voice.
It takes me apart, it gives me away
Piece by piece, day after day.

You could hold me down,
I know you'd like to change,
But you don't know how.
Everything looks grey here in your shadow of doubt,
But you could still hold me down.

Yeah, I get so tired of trying to turn you around,
When all of my words keep falling by the wayside.
My eyes wide, you've got nothing to stay still you can't turn away now.

You could hold me down,
I know you'd like to change,
But you don't know how.
Yeah, everything gets grey here in your shadow of doubt.
But I want to hold you,
The way that you hold me.

I need just a touch to move me,
I need you who sees right through me,
Yeah, I can't stand to hear you say
Your yesterdays were all my mistakes
Why do I get so much when you give up?

You could hold me down,
I know you'd like to change,
But you don't know how.
Everything looks grey here in your shadow of doubt,
But I'm going to hold you,
The way that you hold me down
